now one of the stars tells us new ways die-hard fans can view the show. >> the response to these viewing parties has been so overwhelming. >> and meet the guy who has been serving icy lake michigan. >> so why? it's time to get things started, and gayle has our top story. >> part of a 25-mile police chase was caught on dash cam video, and charleston county, south carolina. but what happened after they got ahold of the suspect has sparked a state investigation. investigators say it all started when suspect timothy mcmanus almost hit sheriff al cannon's car. so he turned on lights and sirens, and the chase began. shortly thereafter, gunfire gets the driver to stop. and as you can see right there, the cop is coming to the scene, hits another car. they pull the suspect out of the car. and they start hitting him. and you think, okay, they've got their guy.
but that's not the end of it. that is a police dog. you can see a sheriff's deputy patting the dog's back while he's biting the suspect's arm. [ sirens ] >> they're like pulling him in six dierent directions! >> what's their objective here? it's like -- trying to contain him, it looks like he's not giving up to put his hands behind his back. >> they get him in the back of a police cruiser, and then the sheriff makes an admission. he says, while the suspect is in the police cruiser, handcuffed, he hits the suspect. >> i slapped him with my open han. i said, you could have killed a lot of people out there today and i slammed the door. >> i'm not condoning what they did, but you've got -- you've never been in that situation. >> but you've got to contain yourself. you've got to act professionally. >> in retrospect, that was wrong. that's not something i would accept with my folks.

was at fault. the driver of the tacoma was killed. and the bus driver was trapped inside the bus. they had to pull her out, and is she was taken to the hospital with serious injuries, and several of the passengers were also taken to the hospital with injuries. >> that bus was going -- yeah, it was going about 40 miles per hour. you've got to imagine the truck coming the opposite direction is probably doing about the same. that is a terrible accident. man, that happened so fast. >> me and my brother, we come out here, this is our home state, our land here. >> rudy and his brother, they generally go out on their land near the water to look for arrowheads. and in finding arrowheads, they stumbled upon what turned out to be a woolly mammoth fossil. >> cool. >> the most amazing thing is, i would not have seen that, and assumed, oh, look, that's something special. i would have assumed it's a rock. >> that's what i wondered. did they know they found something special? did it look like a giant
